Environmental control is complex!

Things to consider include: your process, materials processed, environmental regulations, disposal requirements, space restrictions, by-products produced, upgrading existing facilities… Whew! That’s a lot to worry about!

Even for experienced engineers that know their industry, facility and process inside and out, we can clarify your needs, regulation requirements and engineering. Have a question? Ask Verantis!

Q&A

Meet our lead environmental engineer and big-brained genius, Ken Gineer the engineer.

Ken Gineer was born to be an environmental engineer. His father, Sven Gineer, and mother, Jenn Gineer, came to this country with big dreams for their future children. When they left the old country (we’re not sure what country it is, but it’s old!), they brought with them their love of the environment.

From day one, they raised Ken to have respect for the fragile environment around him. They also taught him engineering skills by making him design and assemble his own crib. That might seem a bit odd, but in the old country, every baby built his or her own crib!

So, from his very first Birkenstock-clad steps, Ken Gineer was born to be an environmental engineer. Of course that doesn’t explain his twin brother, Ben Gineer. He’s a pharmacist. Go figure.

Ken and his big environmental brain can answer any question you Ask Verantis!

Time to Change Your Packing!

It’s a question we hear a lot: When should I change my packing?

That’s a great question! But there is no “one size fits all” answer. Depending on your application and system, it could be as often as every 3 months, or it could be every several years. Here are several indicators that it’s time to change your packing:

You are experiencing a higher pressure drop, your packing may be clogged.

You are experiencing a lower pressure drop, your packing may have settled.

You see debris or fouling during a visual inspection.

You see a change in your plume from the scrubber outlet.

There is chemical degradation from highly concentrated emissions. Inspect for embrittlement, softening, discoloration or thinning of your packing.

There is thermal damage, such as deformation of your packing, discoloration or excessive settling.

You are experiencing a reduction in fan current amp draw.

You find packing in the pump recirculating liquid during a visual inspection.

You find packing below the support plate during a visual inspection.

There is a change in the upstream process, such as higher loading and/or new chemicals.

There is a change in, or a pending change, in regulatory requirements.

So, when should you change your packing? It is a complex question with many variables. When you encounter one or more of the situations on this checklist, it’s time to change your packing.

If you have additional questions about when to change your packing, or if you have encountered a situation not listed here, Ask Verantis.

Tower Internals

Put proven Verantis environmental control technology to work inside your tower!

Verantis offers a comprehensive line of mass transfer tower internals that provide the power behind our wet scrubber systems. Our durable and reliable products can be used with Verantis scrubber systems or to retrofit, upgrade, and enhance any existing system, including systems designed by other manufacturers. If you have a question about any product or service, just Ask Verantis!

Tellerette® Tower Packing

Patented Tellerette technology puts the “power in your tower”!

Tellerette tower packing helps you control your environment and boasts a patented toroidal helix design that makes it dramatically more efficient than conventional packing material for mass transfer, heat transfer, and particulate collection.

Tellerette Types:

Verantis Tellerette packing can be used with existing Verantis wet scrubbing systems as well as other manufacturers’ brands to provide exceptional pollutant removal efficiency while reducing your operating costs. Key features include:

  • Greater gas flow capacity allows use of smaller diameter, lower cost columns.
  • Lower pressure drop to reduce operating costs.
  • High open area design for minimal fouling.
  • High column stability—no classic flooding.
  • Effective impingement of both liquid droplets and solid particulate.
  • No channeling with proper liquid distribution .
  • Available in a wide range of materials, including polypropylene, polyethylene, PVC, CPVC, PVDF, and Tefzel.

How Tellerette Tower Packing technology works:

  1. Liquid is collected by inertial impaction.
  2. Droplets form at interstitial holdup points.
  3. As each droplet falls, it strikes the next packing element and bursts, exposing fresh surfaces to gas.
  4. This agglomeration/dispersal cycle repeats continuously with no additional energy requirements.
  5. Contaminants are absorbed with unique efficiency.

Packing Support Plates

Verantis provides a complete line of packing support plates.

Packing support plates allow for maximum open area and unrestricted flow in your scrubbing system’s tower while providing sufficient strength to support multiple levels of packing and the weight of liquid hold-up during column operation.

We help you control your environment with high-quality packing support plates in just the right size!

  • Custom-sized round or rectangular packing support plates.
  • Designed for strength and durability.
  • Maximum free passage, or open area.
  • Minimizes solid deposits.
  • Allow for easy flushing and cleaning.

Mist Eliminators

All wet scrubber designs incorporate mist eliminators or entrainment separators to remove entrained droplets, which contain the contaminants or particulate matter. Verantis offers high performance chevron mist eliminators to remove liquid entrainment from gas streams with removal efficiencies up to nearly 100%.

The most common mist eliminators are chevrons, which are baffles that cause the gas stream to turn several times as it passes through the mist eliminator, causing liquid droplets to collect on the blades of the chevron and drain back into the scrubber.

Our mist eliminators rely on direct compaction combined with centrifugal force to remove liquid entrainment from gas streams. They provide low pressure drops in scrubbers, cooling towers, air washers, gas absorbers, and ventilation systems.

Our high performance chevron mist eliminators help you control your environment:

  • Special chevron design allows for high velocity operation up to 1,000 fpm.
  • Existing towers with mesh pads can be retrofitted to minimize fouling and pad replacement.
  • Wide blade spacing provides excellent resistance against potential plugging in applications with high solids loading.
  • Effectively removes liquid droplets down to 25 microns.
  • Available in vinylester fiberglass reinforced plastic, 304 and 316 stainless steel, carbon steel, Hastelloy®, and high alloy nickel.
